de-minimizing applications is very slow using the default non-free ati drivers

Bug Description

Binary package hint: compiz

I'm not sure if this is a compiz or ati driver problem; however, it didn't happen before. It's perfectly predictable and reproducable: minimize window, click in task bar to reopen it. Then you have to wait 1-2 secs before the window gets back. Even with animations disabled, this still happens. Using metacity there is no wait at all.

I believe I found a topic about this on the ubuntu forums, containing complaints not only from ati users but also from nvidia users.
